Topic description

In this topic students will apply artistic and digital principles in a series of practical exercises from a selection of specialised workshops. These activities are designed to build an understanding of the technicalities involved in bridging the gap between the theory of art and its practice in a specific art form.

Educational aims

This topic aims to:

  • Provide students with the opportunity to reflect on traditional artistic practices
  • Allow students to produce a series of works demonstrating their understanding of the principles of light and form
  • Build on new and established knowledge of the principles of artistic practice
  • Provide opportunities for students to develop an understanding of the workings of a professional digital studio
Expected learning outcomes
On completion of this topic you will be expected to be able to:

  1. Demonstrate the ability to manipulate lighting, form and shading
  2. Demonstrate appropriate use of vocabulary specific to a digital artist
  3. Demonstrate a progression of practical skills through regular practical exercises

Key dates and timetable

(1), (2)

Each class is numbered in brackets.
Where more than one class is offered, students normally attend only one.

Classes are held weekly unless otherwise indicated.


If you are enrolled for this topic, but all classes for one of the activities (eg tutorials) are full,
contact your College Office for assistance. Full classes frequently occur near the start of semester.

Students may still enrol in topics with full classes as more places will be made available as needed.

If this padlock appears next to an activity name (eg Lecture), then class registration is closed for this activity.

Class registration normally closes at the end of week 2 of each semester.

Classes in a stream are grouped so that the same students attend all classes in that stream.
Registration in the stream will result in registration in all classes.
  Unless otherwise advised, classes are not held during semester breaks or on public holidays.
